Canoe Hire Marlow

Kayak Hire and Canoe Hire Marlow

Canoe Hire Marlow. Marlow is a historic town on on the river Thames, situated just 33 miles west of London. Marlow owed its importance historically to its location on the River Thames, where the road from Reading to High Wycombe crosses the river.


Currently we are not running our usual routes. Please see this page for what we are able to do at this current time.

Launch and Landing Points

The launch/landing point in Marlow is just downstream of the bridge. This bridge is a suspension bridge, designed by William Tierney Clark in 1832. It was a prototype for the much larger Széchenyi Chain Bridge across the River Danube in Budapest.

In addition, we also have the capability to provide canoe or kayak hire from any of our other landing points on the River Thames.

Getting through the Locks

You can either paddle through the locks or get out and carry your boats around. We would suggest that you paddle through the locks when the lock keeper is on duty and portage if the lock is unmanned.

When you are carrying your boats be sure to lift carefully and try not to scrape the bottoms of the boats along the ground if you can help it!


We are unbeatable on price. Check out our up to date pricing structure here.
